    Description

Ferocactus eastwoodiae - Cliff Barrel Cactus

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds.

This species is one of the larger members of the barrel cactus group, growing up to 3 metres tall and 60 cm in diameter. The stems are solitary, so the only way to propagate this species is by seed.

Known locally as the Cliff Barrel Cactus, due to the fact that the largest specimens are often found in rocky inaccessible locations (despite the spines grazing animals find them useful as a source of food where vegetation is scarce. Predation by herbivores and over-collecting mean that this plant is never common in habitat. Native to central Arizona at altitudes of 500 to 1500 metres, the plant is tolerant of frost for very short periods where the roots are completely dry. Generally it prefers winter lows of no lower than 5 Deg C, so is suitable as houseplant or greenhouse specimen.

The plant flowers in the spring, these are usually bright yellow although slight colour variations exist in the petal colouration. These are followed by fleshy fruit which ripen to yellow/orange and are one of the sources of 'cactus' candy.

Full details as to how to germinate and grow this plant can be found by following the link on my 'ME' page.
